High Risk by Vivian Arend is a romance that defies sub-genre. It’s like I’m trying to categorize it and the book is standing up yelling, “I’mma do what I want!” I found it while looking for romantic suspense, but it’s not that. It’s sort of erotic-contemporary-action romance with bondage and… read more »
Time for another romance reader workout! You ready? I know many of you were overindulging at RT, so it's time to get back on the exercise wagon. Like the last few workouts, can do all these exercises with a mat and your own body. No handweights are needed unless you… read more »

In 2009, Delilah Marvelle won the author interview I donated to the Brenda Novak auction, and in that interview, we talked about marketing, and about her School of Gallantry series that she wanted to finish. At that time, she said of RT that it was one of the most effective… read more »
Today at RT, I attended a candid Q&A with Julie Garwood and Jude Deveraux. On the outside, I looked like my normal self. I'd had coffee, I was dressed, my shoes matched, and I was fully charged and ready to tweet. But y'all, these are two of the first authors… read more »
Last night, news broke on Twitter that Rhode Island's house of representatives had approved a bill in favor of gay marriage, and sent that bill to the governor for signature. Governor Lincoln Chafee signed the bill into law hours later. Yay Rhode Island! High fives! Jocelyn emailed me the following two… read more »
One thing I love to do is a giveaway for the swag bag at RT. Each attendee receives a conference bag stuffed with promotional items, plus a choice of some books from the goody room. I have the bag, some books, plus an extra treat. Here's a picture of the… read more »
Twitter was afire yesterday with news that EL James stood up during a YA panel and….said something. Accounts varied as to what was said - can you believe that? Inconsistent reports on the INTERNETS? I went out and spoke with some RT staffers, and some folks who were present at… read more »
